Takuilau College industrial Art building destroyed in massive fire

Massive flames and large plumes of thick smoke poured into the sky this afternoon when a fire erupted at the Takuilau college complex in Lapaha.

The fire destroyed the college’s industrial art building blocks.

The building was still standing but all contents were destroyed, an alumni said.

Firefighters arrived and battled the flames but it was too late.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
